newer ibanez' a bit neck heavy?

I have an RG1570 and I recently bought an Ibanez RG3521, this guitar has the titanium reinforcement in the neck, not sure if its that, but I could swear that the guitar is a bit neck heavy, and just generally not as well balanced as the older 1570.

Has anyone else found this?

Yup. I had a 3725 and it felt the same way.

Re: newer ibanez' a bit neck heavy?

not sure but the 3521 is certainly heavier than the 1570 (probably cos the 1570 has a big hole in the back for the trem)

Personally I'm a bit disappointed with the new prestiges, for a couch jammer such as myself the heavy neck is quite annoying, also i dont know if the profiles different or maybe its the binding but just doesnt feel as nice as my 1570. Build quality is great. Also I'm a bit disappointed that you can no longer get Japanese trem's in the new ibanez's. Im sure the new trems are great, but once you get used to a certain type of trem its hard to change.
